Angus Newz set to continue revival at Leicester

Angus Newz recorded her first win in almost two years at Newmarket on Saturday and is fancied to continue her revival in Leicester's Prestwold Conditions Stakes.

A couple of decent efforts behind the likes of Hawkeyethenoo and Elnawin earlier in the campaign suggested she still retained a level of ability, so it should not have come as a huge surprise when she finally got her head in front.

Her course record is impressive with two wins and three thirds from five starts and with conditions again likely to be testing, another bold show is anticipated.

Midnight Caller looks a good thing in the EBF ladbrokes.com Filbert Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

The Dansili filly was second on her debut at Doncaster and would possibly have won had she not hung right in the closing stages. It would be a surprise if she does not make amends at the second time of asking.

Luca Cumani and Kieren Fallon have proved a formidable combination in recent weeks and they look set to find the target again as Toymaker lines up in the 40 Live Football Markets At totesport.com Maiden Stakes at Folkestone.

The three-year-old was not particularly well fancied for his racecourse introduction at Doncaster a month ago and although he was ultimately well held, he caught the eye making late progress without being knocked around. He passed the post in fifth in what was probably a better race than this and normal improvement should see him play a part in the finish.

Normandy Maid let favourite backers down on her latest start at Newmarket but she can reward those who keep the faith in Ripon's Thank You Peter Bateson Nursery.

An eyecatching debut third at Catterick was followed by victory at Thirsk and it was perhaps slightly disappointing that she could only manage third on her handicap debut.

However, she still looked green and was not beaten all that far at the finish and she deserves another chance in what is a moderate affair.

The best bet on the all-weather at Southwell is the Ralph Beckett-trained Golden Creek. The youngster was a promising third on his first start at Ascot and perhaps five furlongs round Wolverhampton was a bit too sharp when second last time.

This return to six should be a big help and he will be very hard to beat in the Lord Lightfoot Maiden Stakes.

Youralltalk did little wrong when second on his bumper debut at Newton Abbot and should go one place better on his return to the track for the Almapa Father John Wrenn Memorial Intermediate Open National Hunt Flat Race.
